Title: Argonne News Brief: First Sensors for Chicago’s “City Fitness Tracker”

Abstract

This week in Chicago, the Array of Things team installed its first 50 nodes on city streets to kick off the groundbreaking urban sensing project. Array of Things is designed as a “fitness tracker” for the city, collecting new streams of data on Chicago’s environment, infrastructure, and activity. This hyper-local, open data can help researchers, city officials, and software developers study and address critical city challenges, such as preventing urban flooding, improving traffic safety and air quality, and assessing the nature and impact of climate change.
